BUGS and the Three or More Rule

A historian could write a huge, detailed book about three way elections, in extreme detail backed by years of research and thousands of footnotes, and not get the point.

At least three presidential elections were altered completely by having three strong candidates instead of two: the election of John Quincy Adams in 1825, that of Lincoln in 1860, and that of Wilson in 1912. There are hundreds of examples when you throw in all he states, and that is just in America.

It could be a New York Times Best Seller, only three or four people decide that, but this well-researched book would almost certainly miss the point.

It took the public decades to realize that running for the nomination INSIDE the Party is a very different animal from the General Election, so the entire implications of this three or more way election business will probably never be understood, least of all by the trained and obedient historian who writes it.

One of our most basic hopes lies in understanding this three or more way rule:

As long as the white race obeys the anti-whites and looks upon itself as a colonial power which sets the rules for ALL the world, we have a two-way race: Whites versus everybody.

In such a race, when most of the white race itself is anti-white, we cannot win.

But once the realization sets in that not only are we not the colonizers, but ONLY our lands are being colonized, that we are ONE power unit, the entire landscape will change. Instead of competing with the whole world for power, we will be transformed into the overwhelmingly powerful racial group in a world where EVERY race and religious group is fighting for ITS share.

I have visualized this as a political professional. No one else has even LOOKED at it, much less SEEN it.

I wrote a piece about picking the leadership in a group which has subconsciously accepted its role as a permanent extremist organization is very different from picking the leadership in one or two groups that are competing for actual power.

Ulysses S. Grant voted Democratic in 1856 because, like so many others, he saw the Republicans as so extreme that electing Fremont would cause the South to secede. But by 1860 the Democrats were divided into three strong groups, and his conviction was that we might as well go ahead and deal with the expansion of slavery.

Lincoln won with forty percent of the popular vote.

Neither John Quincy Adams nor Woodrow Wilson could have won at all in a two-way race. There are HUNDREDS of examples of this, but a historian would be likely to note that, but miss the basic point.

Applying this BASIC point to our present circumstances is exactly what Mantra Thinking does.
